Aidarini Single Vineyard Goumenissa

by Aidarini Winery
$32.50

 

This is a blend of Xinomavro (60%) and Negoska (40%) from 35 year old vines. Goumenissa's own Aidarini family has been making wine since the late 70's.

This one in particular is super interesting because its aged in hybrid barrels of half american and half french barrels for 22 months.

The scent is reminiscent of your grandpas cigar while he sits in his leather chair by the fireplace.  The typical flavors of olives and sun dried tomatoes, chocolates come through from the xinomavro.  The hint of vanilla is amazing from the barrel!
We highly recommend decanting this one for at least an hour or so.
